Ísafjörður, Iceland
Right before we got to Ísafjörður, in the vicinity of Sudavik, we got to enjoy this amazing view. It was warm and half sunny so we sat there a bit taking in this amazing landscape. The north of Iceland is definitely my favorite part of Iceland...

In the northern Westfjords, about an hour's drive from the region's main city of Isafjordur is one of Iceland's most extraordinary waterfalls. This is one of the main tourist attractions in The Westfjords, for good reason. It's visible from miles...

5 470, Fjarðargata, Thingeyri, Iceland
Icelanders are obsessed with their waffles and don't get me wrong, there's nothing better after a blustery day of hiking in The Westfjords than to settle in for one of their thin, often heart shaped waffles slathered in rhubarb jam. But sometimes...
Save Place
Nauthólsvegur, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
Riding a strange, shrunken horse into a mossy canyon outside Reykjavik on a bright, bracing day with winter rolling in and a plate of minke whale waiting for you at day's end is tops. Doing so on three days' sleep deprivation is, in fact,...

Landmannalaugavegur, Iceland
At the beginning of a 4-day, 40-mile trek through the fringes of the Icelandic highlands, we saw these artistic masterpieces. Landmannalaugar. To me, they were the Rainbow Mountains. Majestic. Surreal. Hiking by this beautiful landscape seemed...

45500 CA-1, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
One of my favorite campgrounds in Big Sur is the big open meadow at Andrew Molera State Park. It's great for large groups and it's one of the best bases for hiking and surfing in the area. More than 20 miles of trails run throughout the park's...
